Track Name: Iamdeadsmiles58 - In The End
In the end we watch mothers hold there children as we all become saints. In the end we realize this life was all a dream. A dream that we could forget a dream that we will never forget. For everything It gave a dream that would never replay in our mind. In the end we knew it was all a lie A lie we all enjoyed until the end. In the end we will tell our ones not to cry as this good bye.
